A History of Service

That Extends Beyond Our Walls

Our hospital was built on a foundation of service to the community. Through the combined commitment and effort of our administrators, board members, physicians, associates, volunteers, government officials, consultants, architects and community members, we anticipate and respond to the needs of our neighbors with community outreach and education programs. Now, as part of the AdventHealth family, AdventHealth Ocala, formerly Florida Hospital Ocala, is well prepared continue our focus on whole-person care for future generations. 

Serving. Teaching. Healing.

Community Outreach and Education Efforts

Extending the healing ministry of Christ means reaching out to offer help and support to all the residents of our community. We do it through programs such as Healthy Home, Mom 365, and Prestige 55. For our youngest community members, we offer Pediatric Orientation to all first grade classes in Marion County. This partnership with teachers educates children about medical care, stranger danger, bike safety and using 9-1-1. We also have strong partnerships with other health care providers, as well as volunteer opportunities across the community.
